1.

TSLA leggings comparable to bottoms from much more expensive brands. Not only are these high-waisted leggings super comfortable, but they’ve also got pockets and aren’t see-through — which means you can wear more cropped tops and feel totally at ease knowing the world is unaware of what color your underwear is.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: «I never take the time to write reviews and I order off Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and particularly love the Align pant (which retails for $85+) but can’t afford or rationalize buying tons of them. I’m always on the hunt for a good yoga pant and I found these the other day and ordered them in size small, and these remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical, but the fabric is a little stiffer. This isn’t a bad thing; the Align pant is almost too buttery soft and it pills and gets caught on everything. There is slight compression with these and mine aren’t see-through (even when squatting). I love love love these and am going to order several more. I actually kinda want to cry thinking about how much money I wasted on the pants at when these are an excellent substitute for a fraction of the cost.» —Ariel Parker

Get them from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 43 colors).

2.

A high-density foam roller that provides the perfect post-workout massage (it helps increase circulation, aka no 👏 more 👏 soreness 👏). It’s also great at relieving I-sit-all-day muscle stiffness that results in an achey back and legs.


Amazon

Promising review: «I have been trying to incorporate more stretching in my life after feeling more back pain and joint stiffness. I work at a computer all day and when I get up to move, it’s not so pretty. LOL. Getting used to the roller will definitely take some time. To me, it was a good pain. The kind of pain you get when you are getting a deep massage. It’s a relief knowing that you are rolling out those sore muscles and knots. I especially like when I can feel and hear the little cracks down my spine!» —Muddy

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four sizes and seven colors).

3.

Anti-slip resistance bands for increasing the difficulty level of your favorite strength exercises. Add these to something as simple as, say, a squat and prepare to feel *all* of your muscles engage. Muscles you probably didn’t know you had! Okay, I’m making you nervous. I’ll stop.


amazon.com

Promising review: «I can NEVER go back to my other resistance bands after using these. My BUTT and thighs KILL me after I use this product (but that’s a good thing, I promise). I use resistance bands daily in my workouts, and I love the fact that these bands don’t bunch up, twist, and hurt my legs/thighs. Plus, they really are slip-resistant and stay on.» —Kori Linae Carothers

Get a set of three from Amazon for $24.99.

4.

Compression socks here to improve your outdoor running game by promoting circulation and increased blood flow. TLDR; These help prevent leg soreness, cramping, *and* use a moisture-wicking fabric that your sweaty feet will love.


amazon.com

Not a runner? Not a problem. Reviewers also swear that these socks are amazing for anyone who works on their feet all day.

Promising review: «I’ve been wearing compression socks to work for years and loved them, but these are the first pairs of compression socks I’ve tried for running. I had been having some leg cramping on my long runs so I decided to try them and will never go back to short athletic socks again. I love the lack of fatigue I get from the pressure from these socks and the decrease of post-run pain. I will be wearing these when I cross the finish line at my first marathon this October!» —jamerz82

Get them from Amazon for $7.95+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 13 colors).

5.

A BPA-free Nalgene water bottle with a screw-top lid, dishwasher-safe plastic, and etched-in measurements that let you keep track of exactly how much water you’ve sipped. This acts as a subtle reminder to stay hydrated, folks.


instagram.com / Via @nalgene, Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

Promising review: «I’ve been using this water bottle daily for about five weeks now since my purchase and I’m very very happy with it. It’s still in very good shape and it has lasted through all my workouts at the local gym. Allows me to drink enough water and keep track of it since it is 32 ounces.» —John

Get it from Amazon for $10.55+ (available in 30 colors).

Is that the sound of, oh wow, motivation?


instagram.com / Via @myopenfit

I admittedly hate online workout classes (like, who will know that I’m taking a break every two seconds?), but have become obsessed with OpenFit — their ballet sculpt classes are just the right level of challenging.

Subscriptions starting at $10/per month.

7.

A pair of Powerbeats headphones with crystal clear sound quality *and* a delightfully comfy design that will actually stay put in your ear. That’s right, folks! Your earlobe sweat won’t make these splurge-worthy buds fall out.


Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeed

Promising review: «These Beats headphones have been a real game-changer for me. The sound quality is SO MUCH better than my cheap headphones, which has actually really improved my experience at the gym. I find it easier to stay motivated now that my music is *crystal clear* (and I can’t hear myself wheezing on the treadmill). I was worried it would be hard to connect their Bluetooth settings to my phone and computer (again…I can’t handle can openers), but the whole process is super self-explanatory. And they stay connected for pretty long distances — I can walk away from my phone to the other side of the room without interrupting my music.» —Emma McAnaw, BuzzFeed Editor

Get them from Amazon for $249.95.

Amazon

Psst, reviewers recommend ordering a size down!

amazon.com

Promising review: «I am new to running and hiking. I go out alone most of the time and sometimes drive to where I’m going to run, therefore need somewhere to keep my car keys, etc. I found this and really love it! It stays in place and I don’t really feel like it’s there while I workout.» —Sara Sullivan

Get it from Amazon for $10.97 (available in five colors).

12.

A machine-washable mat towel, because nothing says «I’m never doing yoga again» quite like your sweaty hands sliding down your sweaty mat to ruin what little stability you have in downward dog. If you know, you know.


Anna Kopsky / BuzzFeed

Promising review: «It seriously has made me improve so much more during my practice, because I’m able to focus on my actual poses instead of getting slightly anxious that my yoga towel won’t stay in place during what is supposed to be one of the most relaxing parts of my day. Plus, the Cush Gummy towel is thick enough where if I wanted to travel with it, I wouldn’t have to lug my actual mat with me on my trip. I have a lot of yoga products I bring with me to class, but this is the most vital one!» —Anna Kopsky, BuzzFeed Community Strategist

Promising review: «I recently began taking yoga and my old standby cotton t-shirts were surprisingly hot and just not as comfortable as I wanted, so I turned to Amazon for an alternative. These fit the bill. So far they are comfortable, wash up well, and don’t end up over my head while I’m attempting a downward dog. They also do a good job in wicking away perspiration.» —B Crane

instagram.com / Via @hokaoneone

Promising review: «These shoes are everything I could ever want in a tennis shoe. The arch is so thick and supportive, but the shoes themselves are so lightweight. It feels like you’re walking/running on clouds. I have horrible shin splints and have never been able to find a shoe that helps me with that support for less impact when running, but these shoes are just amazing. Seriously.

Promising review: «These are awesome! My husband and I worked in a kitchen for a few years, and our shoes would just smell so bad — between sweating from hours of running around and being on our feet, to the grease smells of the sea food truck.

Between my limited dining hall options and my busy schedule, I needed a way to both eat my veggies and get to class on time. ENTER: this amazing blender bottle. BEST purchase my limited paycheck was ever used on. Fill ‘er up with wilted salad bar spinach, crappy orange juice, a grainy apple, some ice, and BOOM…a shake is born.

amazon.com

Promising review: «I wear this top in yoga/Pilates/barre classes, and like the fact it can tie in a knot in the back if you want to have a more fitted look; it can also hang down for a more relaxed look. It comes in several bright colors (I ordered them all!) which go well with any kind of exercise capri/legging. I was most impressed with the quality and value for the money. This top is FOUR TIMES less expensive than typical exercise apparel, and the fit and finish on this are really nice! No surprises when I washed them, either!» —Holly P

Promising review: «Withstood the Arizona heat test. I wore this on a bicycle ride under my jersey. It was 104 degrees. It was cool! I even tried one sleeve up to compare arms and the covered one was cooler because the radiant heat of the sun was hot! I sprinkled my sleeves with water and it was really cool for a while.

Promising review: «The Mirror is the best investment I’ve made in quite some time. It is extremely easy to use. The set up was a breeze. I’ve only had it a little over a week and I am using it daily even if running short on time…it’s easy to even do a 15-minute class! I also love I can do multiple classes one for cardio and then add on a short stretch or toning class. Basically, I feel I control what I want to do each day fitting into my schedule rather than working around classes at the gym. And for a family this is far less expensive each month than a multi-person gym membership. I’m thrilled with The Mirror!!! Even had a friend join me for a class and she loved it too!!» —Ronda Stratis Elkins
